Hearty Fall Meal 

For this simple, satisfying and wholesome meal I roasted two chicken breasts with chopped butternut squash, sweet potato and beets on a single baking dish for 50 minutes at 375. I rubbed the chicken breasts and vegetables with olive oil, pepper, Himalayan salt, thyme, parsley and garlic. While the chicken and vegetables were roasting, I [...]


My First Budda Bowl

Like I stated in my last post, I haven't been feeling super meaty dishes lately and have been craving vegetables. Now that it is fall, I thought I would make a fall inspired, vegetarian Buddha bowl. It was so simple! I started by peeling and dicing a butternut squash, washing and preparing brussels sprouts and [...]

First Time Butternut Squash Soup 

I have been trying to embrace fall by preparing warm, cozy meals with fall harvest foods. Being at home with the little one in the day has allowed me the time needed to prepare these slower-cooking meals.  I have always wanted to try making a puréed soup of some sorts, but it always seemed daunting [...]

A Productive Afternoon in the Kitchen 

Today I took advantage of my sons self-sufficient mood and prepared some things in the kitchen I have been meaning to prepare. My little boy is now six months old and therefore, old enough to start being introduced to various solids. That being said, today I thought I would try making some homemade baby foods. [...]

Enjoy the simple things

What I enjoy most is relaxing at a quaint coffee joint, warm beverage in my hand. Take a moment to sit and enjoy something. Leave your phone at home or in the car. Go to a place with a warm and cozy atmosphere. Order a warm, decadent beverage, notice the rich colour, the smooth texture, [...]

Spending time with nature 

Spending a little time with nature whenever you can sure works wonders for the mind and soul. I try to get outside, as far as I can from the hustle and bustle of today's world, as often as I can. The crisp, clean air, vivid colours and tranquility of it all is so revitalizing and [...]

Mornings With My Son

Mornings haven't always been my cup of tea. In fact, my memories of waking up to the frigid fall air and having to leave my beloved bed for school, or my workplace, seem to have negative associations; such as anxiety, and dread. Being on maternity leave has been the best time of my life. I get to experience [...]
